because for me it is. i got a new bank account today and they told me online and on the phone that i don't have to have a minium balance if i'm under 18. and then when i got there they said i had to put at least 50 dollars in it. sounds like they don't know what their doing because the minium balance kept going down we got it all the way down to 25 dollars. i think they were cheating us out of some money because they wanted some. and my dad now mad at me because i too his 25 dollars and set him back. he doesn't make too much. and thats why i needed a online job to buy my own stuff and then there was verifying my pay pal. its saying it might take a few days i hope it gets verify so i didn't do all this for nothing. did anyone else have problems like these?

yes i thought you said your mom had a pay pal? and the only way she could have a pay pal is if she has a banking account. i had to make another bank account because my lotters told me that pay pal is a very good site but just in case something goes wrong you might want your own bank account even if they trust pay pal. and pay pal when transfering money you have to pay a small fee like only .07 of what your making i think or maybe less you have to read it.

oh okay, becuz from mypage5 ive seen lots of ppl saying tat when they reach their minimum payout of $50 then they end up only getting like $20 or $30 for some reason becuz it gets deducted from something. which i think is really stupid. and really? cuz my brother said tat u can just put in a credit card and then u can let ur paypal send u checks to ur house i guess.

hi tiffany it would proably have been easierif you already had a bank account as I know paypal talked me through how to connect paypal with my bank account so paypal could pay directly into my account. It only took one day for paypal to verify for me. it you had already had an account the whole thing wou ld be much easier, go back to paypal and have them walk you through all the steps, they can really help you straighten out everything.

oh no i already had a bank account. but my mom didn't trust sites like these so she told me i can't have a pay pal with the bank account she got for me. so then i had to go out of my way but 25 dollars in a new bank account and make one with a different bank account. but thanks for sharing and your tips so far pay pal hasn't deducted anything from me so thats good you might be right!
